Celebrating BINUS 35th Anniversary


BINA NUSANTARA started with a dream and a sense of determination. Founded by Joseph Wibowo Hadipoespito and Theresia Widia Soerjaningsih, this education institution has gone through many stages, and overcome various barriers. It still stands strong and grand despite the competition.

Joseph Wibowo Hadipoespito was a man of simplicity and hard work. His well known success philosophy, the “3K Strategy”, has been instilled in the spirit of BINA NUSANTARA until this very day.

The “3K Strategy” stands for: Kesempatan (Opportunity), Keberanian yang bertanggung jawab (Courage with responsibility), and Kerja keras (Hard work). This philosophy still lives in the heart of BINA NUSANTARA today.

Along the way, Theresia Widia Soerjaningsih added a new touch to the BINA NUSANTARA institution. As a caring and affectionate leader, Dr. Ir. Th. Widia Soerjaningsih, MM. dedicated her entire life to the development of the education sector in Indonesia. Her touch was to add another ‘3K’ to Joseph Wibowo’s existing success strategy, thus forming the “6K Success Strategy”: The ‘6K’s’ are: Kesempatan (Opportunity), Keberanian (Courage), Keberuntungan (Good Fortune), Kemauan (Willingness), Kerja keras (Hard work), Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan (Belief in God).

The name BINA NUSANTARA was given by Rudy Poerwana. Literally the name means ‘Building the Archipelago’. This name holds the aspiration that this institution can build and develop the islands of Indonesia through education. That dream still lives on until to this very day.

Becoming A World-class Knowledge Institution.
